What is an Industrial IoT Test Bed?


The research group Smart Production Systems (abbr. SPS) - under the direction of Prof. Dr. Dirk Reichelt - addresses the issue how future-oriented production scenarios look like, especially by using industry-relevant key technologies. To investigate the problem Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) the Test Bed was developed as an environment of test and experiment at the University. The working group consists of an interdisciplinary research team including informatics, automation technology, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering and management.
